Made by Korean cap company YoungAn. Same company that made Sports Specialties caps. I knew New Era had NFL caps made by them around the time you mentioned but that's my first time seeing MLB.

They were the same price as all the others, $25 I believe. There were still a few left when I left. If they're out there again next year, I'll get the ones that they have left.

Thanks for letting me know. It's been almost nine years since it was posted so to be honest I don't even know if I have them anymore. I haven't even logged into my Photobucket in a few years at least. The post also needs to be updated. I'm out of work until this whole Coronavirus thing is over so who knows, maybe I'll get it updated since I'm stuck at home.

Damn, that was a steal!

I have the originals saved. Photobucket is weird with hosting now.

Edit. It looks like it’s been reuped. Awesome

BTW. Love the blog. I'd love an update with the current era. It's actually much simpler than the prior early days. Although there are a few random caps that have multiple era of tags on them (diamond era tags with the thorough new era description paragraph sz tag. Or an authentic collection tag with prior years new era tags.

I think I have the years down pretty good from 2000 to now. But it’s more mental. I don’t think I’ve laid it all out in front of me chronological.

I am slowly beginning to revise the New Era cap tag chronology via my blog. It's still under construction and there's lots of work to be done and lots of things to fix, so don't take everything there as 100% fact yet. Keep checking back as I update it.
